North Spitsbergen Arctic Wildlife Cruise

Sailing along the pack-ice of North Spitsbergen will provide you with wonderful opportunities to spot the King of the Arctic. During this 8 day cruise you will sail to Raudfjord on the north coast of West Spitsbergen, a beautiful fjord dominated by spectacular glaciers and favoured by winged and bearded seal. The cliffs and shoreline of the fjord also support thriving seabird colonies and surprisingly rich vegetation, which flourishes in sheltered spots.

Early Winter in Arctic Spitsbergen

October to mid-November is a unique time to travel in Arctic Spitsbergen, as the seasons change and as the Polar winter closes in. During this time of year, you can still expect a limited amount of light each day, allowing for daytime activities such as winter Fatbiking, walking tours and day cruises within the vicinity of Longyearbyen. As the season progresses, these activities take place against a backdrop of longer nights and the near-constant spectacle of the aurora borealis.

Additional Information

Visa Requirements

Although Norwegian Svalbard is not covered by the Schnegen Agreement, the same rules apply so far as visas are concerned. This means that citizens of EU member states and those countries (e.g. USA, Canada, Australia) with Schengen Area visa free travel agreements do not need a visa to travel to Spitsbergen or to Norwa.

I wanted to let you know that I had an amazing time, loved every minute of it... THANK YOU!
